About Me


Living, eating, drinking, travelling, seeing new places, meeting new people.


My name is Jan and I am a student from Aachen, Germany! :-)
I guess I'd describe myself as uncomplicated, open-minded and curious. Sometimes I'm crazy and childish and sometimes I'm quiet and serious. I like to meet new people and make new friends and I enjoy seeing new places! :-)


Live is too precious to be left to fate.
Das Leben ist zu kostbar, um es dem Schicksal zu überlassen. (Deus X. Machina - Walter Moers: Die 13 1/2 Leben des Käpt'n Blaubär)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Amazing stays in Tasmania with great people :) and recently had my first Couchsurfing experience in Germany which was as awesome as the ones in Australia!


A lot of things!
Music, sports, politics, technology, innovation, ecology, economy, photography, art, food ... and more! :-)

Music, Movies, and Books


Mainly rock and alternative but I also like electro, indie and mixes of all of the above. I play drums myself but other than keeping a rhythm I'm not very musical.


Too many to count... Action, Thriller, Comedy, Drama, Phantasy, Superhero-Movies ... My favorite movies are probably all Lord of the Rings movies.


Thrillers (Kathy Reichs at the moment, but also Simon Beckett and others), Walter Moers, Harry Potter, The Hobit, The Lord of the Rings ...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Visiting amazing places such as Sweden, Ireland, Kopenhagen, London, Victoria ... and many other great places!
I did an exchange semester in Melbourne Australia! I love this country, it's so beautiful! I met so many awesome people, did so many cool things and saw heaps of amazing places! My favorite memory might be a 4x4 Tour on Fraser Island! Awesome!
The most amazing place I have ever been is New Zealand. After Australia I thought nothing could be more awesome... But I was wrong - I lost my heart to NZ <3

Teach, Learn, Share

I always try to learn new things, love it when I can teach someone something and like to share my experiences with whoever wants to share theirs!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have a couch for 1-2 people. I am not always here in Aachen but I try to give back some of the welcomes I received while I was surfing :)
Also I'll try to show you around the city and take you to good bars and restaurants if I can!

Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States
